Duolingo is just a language proficiency test and not the only mandate to study abroad. Apart from Duolingo or any other Language Proficiency Test for that matter, there are a lot of other aspects that the Adcom will look for in your profile. The other important factors in an application include:
1. Bachelor’s GPA

2. GMAT/GRE Score

3. Extracurricullars

4. Work Experience

5. SOPs and Essays

GRE is an important aspect that is used by schools abroad to judge your ability to understand the subject and check if you are academically capable enough to pursue the course that you are applying for.
